Patency refers to being unobstructed.

"12-month primary patency rate of 85.0% " means that 12 months after the treatment, 85% of the the blood vessels were open and unobstructed. Generally, primary patency means the vessel was open immediately after the treatment and remained that way.

"secondary patency" refers to blood vessels that open later, over time.
